APE’s Lower Doe River Cleanup

bozemankayaker wrote 19 days ago:


Meeting at Green Bridge Landing river access across from Hampton High School at 10:00 A.M. to clean the Lower Doe River section to Valley Forge, TN.  Jerry Griffin will discuss the sections that he has mapped and crews assigned at the river access Saturday morning.

Most of the cleanup will be wading and walking the river banks to collect trash. We can still use boats to haul trash out on by pulling them with our rope, but at these levels the water will to shallow to paddle in most places.
We want to get as much trash as possible out of the river, but are looking to clean up to the flood plain for safety reasons and time limitations.  We will carry the trash to the roadside for pickup and removal.  Carter County is placing a dumpster at Green Bridge Landing to collect all trash from cleanup.  APE’s will provide trash bags and gloves to all participants.

Return to Green Bridge Landing by 4:00 PM for a pizza party from Jiggy Ray’s (http://jiggyrays.com/).

2017 APE’s Nolichucky Gorge 1st Timer’s River Trip

james wrote 57 days ago:


This past Saturday (8/19/2017) was the Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts (http://www.riverapes.org/) annual river trips on the Nolichucky Gorge geared for first timers.  This river trip has been a staple event almost every year for the club since its establishment all the way back in 1986.  The APE’s also leads a trip on the Lower Nolichucky during this event for an easier whitewater river trip option.

For the past 6 years the APE’s Cruise Director has had the pleasure to work with USA Raft to make this trip run like a well oiled machine.  USA Raft provides the APE’s a great place to stage and use their facility for the put-in/take-out for both the gorge and lower river trips.  They also provide shuttle service using one of their raft buses and a trailer to haul all the kayaks to the gorge put-in.  After the river trips, the APE’s picnic is hosted back at USA Raft in their café facility.  All this together makes for a fantastic river experience for all the paddlers thanks to USA Raft!

This year’s gorge trip was once again another good time for all who joined!  The group had a nice 825 CFS river level and the weather was warm & sunny.  23 paddlers were in the group that included: 13 kayakers, 1 ThrillKat and three raft crews.  The group only has two first timers this year, so the trip was modified from year’s past.  Part of the group focused on guiding the first timers in a successful descent.  Another group worked and played the run in every possible way.  This made it a thrilling run for everyone!

After the river trips, both the gorge paddlers and the lower paddlers came together with other who could not make the river trips in one large group to have a wonderful gathering at the annual APE’s picnic.  During the picnic, Rahual Subramanian, was awarded the “APE’s Rookie of the Year” award for his many PFD and progression through this paddling season.  Good food and fellowship were had by all in attendance!

Tumwater Free for all

Good morning Wenatchee Valley!
I hope everyone has been having a rockin summer. It has been hot AF and the river has been quite the asset to keep our minds right.
For tonights weekly dose, we are going to get our Tumwater on! Bring your play boat and come throw down in cherry hole or fire off some laps on what ever section you like. The levels are relatively juicy but its a fluffy level to get comfortable in some bigger water.
Meet at the Red Bridge at 5:30 and we’ll get after it!
If anyone feels like bringing a grill, let others know and we’ll grill and chill it up!
Cheers,
T-Pot
